Every last Thursday the USA celebrates Thanksgiving Day. It’s a special holiday for Americans. Let’s read more about the history and a special meal that is served on this celebration.

THANKSGIVING DAY

Thanksgiving Day is a public holiday in the USA. People celebrate it on the last Thursday in November. Some people think that the modern Thanksgiving Day comes from the year of 1621 – the harvest celebration of the first English settlers 1 known  as Pilgrims. But the first true2 thanksgiving comes from the year of 1623 – people give thanks for the rain that ends a drought3 in a special church service.

Today, it is a day for families and friends. They meet and have a special meal4, such  as turkey5, stuffing6, potatoes, cranberry sauce, gravy7 and vegetables. Thanksgiving Day is a time for giving thanks. Offices, shops and schools are closed. It is a very busy time period, so there are a lot of traffic jams.

Some people dislike8 Thanksgiving Day – each year since 1970, a group of Native Americans protests in Plymouth (Massachusetts) on that day.
